Note: These instructions are for instructors using Pivot Interactives prior to the creation of the Pivot Interactives store in June 2021. If you're a new user, please see these instructions instead for how to create a Student Pay License.

Instructors can create classes where students join by paying for their own access, either by paying directly with a credit card or using an access code purchased from your institution's book store.

At least 10 students must purchase access for your account to become active.

  • To create a student-pay course, you'll need to have a teacher account on Pivot Interactives. If you don't have a teacher account, you can request a free account here.

  • Once you have an account, log in and create a new class by going to My Classes and clicking the "+ Add Class" button:

  • Configure the class by giving it a name and selecting the payment type and institution level:

  • Once your new class is created, you can see and edit the class by clicking on the class title from the My Classes page, then selecting "View Class & Roster."

  • To invite students to join the class, give them the eight-character Class Key or the Join Link:

When students join the class, they will be prompted to create an account and to:

  • enter a credit card number to pay for access to your course

  • enter an access code they purchased from your institution's bookstore

Either option will allow the student to join the class and access the instructor's materials.

As an instructor, you'll need a minimum of 10 students to join the class within the first 30 days of creating the course; otherwise, the class content will not be visible to the students.
